Renault revealed their latest concept car today ahead of the official debut at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show. The Captur is a sporty crossover vehicle created with Renault’s new design strategy. The idea is to select different stages of human life and develop a companion concept vehicle. The DeZir coupĂ© concept which aimed to express ‘falling in love’ was the first of the series and debuted at the 2010 Paris Auto Show.

The Captur is derived from the impulse to explore and discover. The styling is meant to convey a blending of fun and functional ques. Renault exterior designer, Julio
Lozano took inspiration from athletes and extreme sporting gear in developing the look of the Captur. The exterior has a mix of muscular forms with technical details. The exterior has a mix of textures with sections like the front and rear fenders in a matte finish while other area are glossy paint.

Inside there are some obvious feature which won’t ever see production. The seats for example are lightweight frames which elastic cord stretched around them. They look cool but maybe aren’t the most practical. These cords extend through the entire interior under which things can be secured. Sections of the instrument panel are translucent and internally illuminated resembling the look of a running shoe.

Renault has hinted that the Captur is a preview of a forthcoming road car.
